        PAGESIZE(88 132 *ROWCOL)

Lines per page(88) and LPI(8) are my preferences, but of course you could use

Some others on this list have reported that PAGRTT(*AUTO) doesn't work as
desired; may be hardware and/or network OS related, don't know - haven't had
this problem for several different printer setups.

Well, this is interesting, but not what I was looking for.

Our remote printers (LAN printers) all print in Landscape for everything
they print.  There was a table someone showed with some kinds of codes to
use to print in different CPIs and Landscape or Portrait.

  I posted parameter settings for a Remote Writer TCP/IP OUTQ about six
weeks ago.  This allows you to route AS/400 output to a Windows NT Print
Server resource.  Say I have a Lexmark Optra S printer resource called
LANPRINT defined on NT Server WINDOZE that I use today to print cute little
excel and word documents.  Here is an OUTQ definition to route AS/400 output
to the LAN printer using the NT print server definition.

CRTOUTQ <F4 key> then <F11 key>
 TEXT('test lan printer IP outq') AUTCHK(*DTAAUT)

Obviously, you have to change the OUTQ, RMTSYS, RMTPRTQ and MFRTYPMDL
parameters to match your specific environment.  You can further customize
the CPI, LPI, PAGRTT (rotation) settings by using workstation customization
objects *WSCST.  We find that we get the best results by forcing landscape
printing and hardcoding a 13CPI font.  You will find instructions on how to
create and use WSCST objects in the IBM Support Line Knowledgebase at

Hope this helps,
